  1. Today
  2. Go in blind. Everything you need is in the video before the 'match' starts. Also, Delete or Decay (the follow up) is really fun.

    The Music Thread

    Randomly heard today that Steven Tyler is 71. And that kinda shocked me. The punchline for old rock band has been The Rolling Stones for so long that Aerosmith has just kinda flown under the radar.
  5. Still going thru my VHS collection. Finally found a keeper. Even had the typed out match listings. Thanks Mike.
  6. Ice Cream Man #5: this is beautiful and haunting and weird and delightful. Immortal Hulk #3: still fucking great. Infinity Countdown #5: Jesus...how much longer does this shit go on? Jessica Jones #1: basically unreadable. Comics: 96 Trades: 9 Graphic Novels: 1 Omnibus: 1
  7. When I do get around to watching The Final Deletion , should I go in blind or are there segments / matches that should be seen first?
  8. More of this please! Not neccessarily with Dave* because, as Mike noted, a lot of staff/contributors are wrestling fans. Also, if Mike ever gets around to watching The Final Deletion, that'd be worth a segment on its own! *Nothing wrong with Dave's contribution, save for his Brock Lesnar rant. He's entitled to his stupid opinion of course, but making the link that Jinder Mahal being a more interesting top guy than Brock is palpably absurd.
  9. Finally got around to watching Batman v. Superman and Justice League.
  10. Hannah and Jim are back, and this time around they offer an apology to Antony Johnston, then they discuss Kingdom Hearts III, Destiny 2, and Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James. [ 47:05 || 24.9 MB ]
  11. Well, vinyl has made a comeback in recent years, so hey, Dan's people have re-found him.
  12. Last week
  13. That was an excellent cap to a terrific season. Hell, I would be happy if this is where the show ended. They even baked in an in-continuity reason for the USS Discovery, spore drive, Section 31, and even Michael to never be spoken of in the TOS / TNG eras of Star Trek.
  14. So I finally decided to watch Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. I didn't like the first couple episodes but I got into it after the first story wrapped up and they moved on. I have to say, Sabrina is kind of an asshole and I wasn't expecting that. Almost every crisis is her fault because she does things out of selfishness disguised as love for her friends.
  15. Magnificent Ms. Marvel #2: Solid Spider-Man: Life Story #2: Awesome. Zdarsky is a born Spidey writer. Single Issues: 158 Trade Paperbacks: 3
  16. DC Universe scales back 'Swamp Thing' over 'creative differences' Warner Brothers is already fucking it up. I wish DC could get away from them.
  17. Miracleman #1-#16: by Alan Moore, Rick Vietch, Alan Davis John Totleben and Garry Leach For whatever reason, I'd always viewed Miracleman (Marvelman) as "foreign comics" considering they never initially printed in America. I dunno what I was expecting, because it's definitely Alan Moore writing, that's for damn sure. I need to find a new reference, but Moore's run reminds me on Evangelion. Everything starts out both familiar and subversive, but working its way around a science fiction/superhero plot. The first four issues tending with Kid Miracleman I found more interesting than the retconny sci-fi origin. The marital problems between Moran and Liz were interesting (issue #9 hit me like a smack in the face. I think I'd read about that before but certainly wasn't expecting it). But Moore's skills as a storyteller grow with each issue, and by the return of Kid Miracleman I found myself completely hooked. I would argue that this is the darkest, starkest story Moore's ever told, with nothing held back and everything being greater for it. John Totleben is the artist by this point, and his depiction of carnage and superhero action is absolutely stunning. More abstract, fiery brushstrokes than penciled illustration. The follow-up issue where Moore ends his run the only way it could was simply perfect. I bipped and bobbed a bit into Neil Gaiman's issues, but I thought Moore's run worked fine as the end of the series. A lot of Miracleman can be found in Dr. Manhattan later on, but it was different enough to be familiar not not repetitive. The idea of a godlike superhero inacting maximum, page-one change onto the world seems like the only real story to tell if you're going to go there. Highly recommended, but not for the squeamish. This is adult storytelling at its best. Batman #69 (2019): Yawn Single Issues: 156 Trade Paperbacks: 3
  18. In an Earth-2.net: The Show first, we dedicate an entire episode to wrestling! Dave and Mike sat down for well over three hours to discuss the superb NXT TakeOver: New York card, and the feel-good show that was WrestleMania 35! Personal backstories with wrestling are discussed, as are the in-ring storylines, Randy Orton's ability to hit the RKO out of nowhere, and the future stars that are Johnny Gargano, Kofi Kingston, and Becky Lynch!

  19. Relay #1: wow...this was a real mess. Robocop Citizen's Arrest #4: wow, I don't understand how there's another issue to this series. I'm very intrigued. Suicide Squad #44: pretty great. The Flash #50: no thanks. The Punisher #227: this is so fucking good. X-23 #1: this was good. Looking forward to see where they go next. Dead Life #1: this started out like a riff on Pet Sematary but just sort of turned into the Walking Dead. Not really my thing. Euthanauts #1: not my thing. Hunt for Wolverine Claws of Killer #3: fun.

  20. Love, Simon: Been meaning to check this out for forever, as well as the book Simon vs. the Homo Sapien Agenda. I was a little weary of the poster which looked to implied a goofy comedy, but I totally loved this. It was effortlessly sincere and all the characters were realistic. The ending was spoiled for be about a year ago in knowing that Keiynon Lonsdale was in it and the extent to his part, but I still welled up in the third act. Great film.
  21. Not textbook example of anything. D2 is the superior Mighty Ducks movie. It gets rid of all the useless kids and replaces them with more memorable players. Except Guy. Who is still there. For some reason. And you get the brilliance that is Wolf "The Dentist" Stansson.
  22. I watched it. There was really only one cool thing where I was like oh could have waited for that. Everything else anyone with a brain knows is coming or was already on a foreign market poster.
  23. To be honest, anything Dan posts in here is going to get that reaction. Such as wax discs and the electric grammaphones.
  24. This is a nifty tool to spoiler-proof websites
  25. Batman the Movie: Noticed for the first time that Bruce Wayne drinks milk in a wine glass when he's out on the town with "Kitka".
  26. ^You can do that? Great idea, I'll do it too.
